1. If Mick was worried about Putin's reaction, Don Trump must have been terrified.

Now we are getting to the heart of the matter...Republicans needing to keep Putin happy.

He must be holding a hell of a lot of kompromat on the Organized Crime Party.

2. Well, of course, Russian wouldn't like it. That's the point.

The javelins are to the protect Ukraine's people and their land from Russia!

Mulvaney was/is afraid of Donald's wrath.

4. One day the whole story will be told.

The story of a treasonous President and a rogue cabal that set out to sell our democracy.

I only hope the truth comes out in my lifetime.

6. I'm sitting here shaking my head . . . .

and wonder, how in the hell can Republicans support and protect this administration and shithole?

Then I answer my own question - "cause Republicans are beholding to Russia as well".

Lindsey Graham, Rand Paul, McTurtle, Grassley, et al., AND House Republicans . . .

19. It's truly staggering to comprehend the yet unknown level of, well, treason with GOP.

How does treason read regarding "enemy" in a hereunto, non-shooting "cold war" with a heavily sanctioned country (dictatorship) and ongoing nuclear rival? Soviet Union yes for decades. Current Russia? If the Congress has been compromised with rubles, coverted to dollars "campaign contributions/ donations" whether overtly or through an intermediary (say NRA) is that not treason as defined; giving "comfort to the enemy" by their pro-quo votes against, or to repeal sanctions, Ukraine aid, etc., etc.?

8. The word "bombshell" gets tossed around a lot, but... this must be the biggest OMG in US history!

Because Russia wouldn't like it?

RUSSIA?

RUSSIA?

11. Obama declined to provide the missiles for the same reason.

Obama was wisely concerned that arming people that might end up in a hot war with our nuclear armed rival Russia, could be seen as an act of war. That's why, while providing lots of other assistance, he opposed "lethal assistance".

None of that changes the fact Trump used that assistance to extort investigations but this stated concern would have been entirely reasonable.

13. Had russia already actively invaded Ukraine at the time of Obama's declination?

I'm asking because absent a shooting war already underway, Obama was correct.

20. Wasn't that a part of the national security effort - to stand up (and make a point) to Putin?

That there would be an adverse reaction efforts to take territory in Europe for the first time since WWII?

Isn't this the crux of how Trump, and his sycophants, are acting in counter to the best interest of the country?

Ya, I know, I am preaching to the choir.

21. As tRump is continuously linked to Russia, do not forget that the republican party was there first.

The reason the Republican Party keeps protecting tRump is because the republicans themselves are shackled to Putin. The only corruption republicans keep spewing about, is their corrupted links to Mother Russia. That is why they are so eager to project their corruption onto Dems.

Hey Mick, I despise you even more than I did 60 seconds ago

I hope all your overlords toss your ass from the castle with a great thrust that causes you terrible pain and remorse.

And thatís just for starters.

Fuck right off
